I'm hoping to build a list from comments of specific pieces of legislation we all should be aware of so we more directly know what caused a problem and what can be done to solve it.
The financial collapse in 2008 and all the other financial problems have a lot to do with congress passing the Financial Modernization Act of 1999 which repealed a lot of aspects of Glass-Steagall as well as create additional problems.

Please share links of important problematic legislation if you can. I've been linked a lot of important information on forums and I thank everyone for that. Sharing information is the first step to achieving our goals.
